SHIPROCK, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say two people who led police on a high-speed chase from southern Colorado into northwestern New Mexico are dead.

Lt. Kyle Lincoln of the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office says the male and female were found with gunshot wounds inside their vehicle Monday. He says police never fired weapons but recovered a handgun from the vehicle.

Lincoln says authorities in Montezuma County, Colorado, were called after the two stole gasoline in Cortez. Investigators say shots were fired from the suspects’ vehicle during the pursuit, hitting two law enforcement vehicles and the car of a vacationing couple from Germany.

The suspect’s vehicle crashed on a dead-end road in Shiprock on the Navajo Nation. Lincoln says authorities called out to the suspects, but no one responded. Police then broke out a window and found the two dead.
